Freedom, Liberty & Independence !!

26 Mar

 

 

FLIFreedom, Liberty and Independence ) are such wonderful things that if you think they are temporary ….they become permanent and if you think they are permanent they become temporary !!

If one small  time ( from Hyderabad ) leader’s uttering and vomiting are of any indication, then Indian society has already started thinking that the Independence and the Freedom achieved in 1947 are permanent.

FLI are the three most valuable and the most sought after, precious things but sadly, only the societies which don’t have them… value them… as such. Those who have ( FLI ), start sleeping on them or some of them, start misusing.

Chutbhayias, Kanayiaas, Kan-khujayias,  and O-Vehshies are multiplying in India. Time to think our FLI are temporary – if it is not already too late  !!

Globally also, the position is no different. The terrorists can not be reached and therefore can not be counseled but the educated and the civilized are also not helping and are definitely behaving, in an uneducated and uncivilized manner. Making fun of Prophet Mohammed is one such example and certainly was in a very poor taste and was both unfair and uncalled for. This is not Freedom of Expression- it is a gross misuse of it !!

My freedom is OK within my boundary wall and my neighbor’s within his. If I start making mischievous remarks / comments about his wife, I have definitely started misusing my so called “freedom”.

The western developed countries have given us ( or at least a big chunk of it )  and taught us  FLI. We thank them for it but now, they need not and may not, lead us… to teach how to misuse FLI.

If I am going on a highway I am using my freedom. But there also, I don’t have the freedom to change my lane and speed as per my whims and fancies. Moreover, if and when I reach a red light, then what is freedom – to jump the red light or…. to….. stop ?

 

Yours truly,

‘religiously’ religion-less and ‘religion-less-ly’ religious !!

    Very true, Surinder.
    Freedom of thought comes with the responsibility of not acting out every thought.
    Freedom of speech comes with the responsibility of not disparaging others.
    Freedom of action is best used to break down walls and build bridges.
    All good wishes,
    Eric

    The first two lines carry a powerful message. Indeed, we often take our privileges for granted. A sure path to eroding them.

    Only a sensitive person would understand what “Freedom, Liberty and Independence” truly means.
